CMS has streamlined the hardship exception application process for eligible providers (EPs), eligible hospitals (EHs), and CAHs allowing “categories” of EPs, EHs, and CAHs, and groups of providers to apply for a hardship exception on a single application.
EPs, EHs, and CAHs who did not meet MU for 2015 can apply for a hardship exception prior to July 1, 2016.
Even if you are in the Medicaid EHR incentive program, you will receive penalties to Medicare Part B billings in 2017 if you didn’t attest to MU in 2015.
Applications and instructions are available on the EHR Incentive Programs website.
